Eye Contact? Thread starter Pilot the Cannibal Start date Oct 27, Pilot the Cannibal Member. Just kidding. I find I can't make eye contact with people when I am talking to them. I usually look down at the table or off to the side. It's not because I have social anxiety, I just find looking at them straight in the eyes very distracting since it's not natural for me to do it and it's hard to focus on what I'm saying if I'm looking them straight in the eyes.
However, I've found that I do look people in the eye when they're talking to meso it's not really a problem with the eye contact itself, it's just speaking and making eye contact simultaneously that's tricky for me haha. Also: I know most people don't make eye contact if they're frightened or lying, but that's not what I'm talking about--just in regular conversation with a friend or colleague. Anyways, I was wondering if any of you guys did anything similar to this, or if it was just me?
I think I've noticed a few although not many people who do the same thing as I do, so I was wondering if it had anything at all to do with personality type. Local time Today, Joined Jul 7, Messages You have a very low self-esteem or you're a liar.
Since I was kid, I always stare people right on their eyes, eventhough they're far older than me. Local time Today, Joined Jun 24, Messages Tony3d Active Member. If you are making eye contact when they are speaking, but not when you are speaking, you are sending subconscious body language that is telling them that what they have to say is more immportant and they are more dominant than you.
I would suggest working on that in any sort of business aspect. All I can really say is just keep trying to make eye contact with everyone you see, even if they are just passing by, until it doesn't feel akward anymore.They enjoy spending time alone, thinking about how things work and coming up with solutions to problems.
INTPs have a rich inner world and would rather focus their attention on their internal thoughts rather than the external world. They typically do not have a wide social circle, but they do tend to be close to a select group of people.
The MBTI is based upon psychoanalyst Carl Jung's theory which suggests that personality is made up of different cognitive functions. The hierarchical order of these functions is what establishes personality and behavioral patterns.
The dominant function is the one that plays the largest role in personality, although it is also supported by the auxiliary. The tertiary function is less developed, but still exerts some influence and become more pronounced as a person strengthens this area. The inferior function is largely unconscious, but represents an area of weakness. This function focuses on how people take in information about the world. INTPs express this by trying to understand how things work.
They often like to break down larger things or ideas in order to look at the individual components in order to see how things fit and function together. INTPs tend to be highly logical and efficient thinkers. They like to have a complete understanding of something before they are willing to share an opinion or take action. INTPs express this cognitive function by exploring what-ifs and possibilities.
They utilize insight, imagination, and past experiences to form ideas. They often go over what they know, seeking patterns until they are able to achieve a flash of inspiration or insight into the problem. They tend to spend a great deal of time thinking about the future and imagining all the possibilities. INTPs tend to be very detail-oriented, carefully categorizing all of the many facts and experiences that they take in.
As they collect new information, they compare and contrast it with what they already know in order to make predictions about what they believe will happen next.
INTPs tend to seek harmony in groups. While they are introverted, INTPs can be quite outgoing when they are around people with whom they are familiar and comfortable. In situations where they feel stress, however, INTPs shut down their feelings and struggle to connect with others.
Under stress, they tend to rely on logic rather than feelings. As introverts, INTPs prefer spending time alone for the most part. While they may be shy around people they do not know well, INTPs tend to be warm and friendly with their close group of family and friends. Because INTPs enjoy solitude and deep thinking, they sometimes strike others as aloof and detached.
At times, people with this personality type can get lost in their own thoughts and lose track of the outside world. They love ideas and place a high value on intelligence and knowledge. In social situations, INTPs tend to be quite easy-going and tolerant. However, they can become unyielding when their beliefs or convictions are challenged. Their high emphasis on logic can make it difficult to not correct others in situations where other people present arguments that are not rational or logical.
Because they rely on their own minds rather than others, they can also be very difficult to persuade. Because they enjoy theoretical and abstract concepts, INTPs often do particularly well in science-related careers.
They are logical and have strong reasoning skills, but are also excellent at thinking creatively. INTPs can be very independent and place a great deal of emphasis on personal freedom and autonomy. In some cases, they can be aggravated by authority figures, particularly those that they feel are trying to suppress their ability to think and act for themselves. Because of this, INTPs typically do best in careers as they have a great deal of flexibility and independence.
Shared interests are one of the best paths to forming a friendship with an INTP.Typing other people can be a challenge, especially if you do not know them personally.
If you cannot ask someone about their personality, the best you can do is collect clues and make an educated guess. You can spot an INFJ by their edgy and sometimes brooding demeanor that is interspersed with flashes of light-heartedness and enthusiasm.
They are the ones who often act as the moral voice in their group. They seem very insightful and wise and often seek to point out the nice things they observe in other people and make them feel good about themselves. INFJs can often be found in the arts especially that of drama and theater. They are likely to be a bit of a klutz and accident-prone thanks to their inferior Se. INFJs are often polite and careful not to offend other people although they themselves may get their feelings hurt more frequently than they care to count.
You can probably spot an INFP by their ephemeral and otherworldly aura. From afar, they are likely to appear arrogant, self-centered and artsy-fartsy. INFPs tend to be reserved, preferring not to draw too much attention to themselves and instead spend much of their time observing and daydreaming. Once they become more comfortable around people, they are likely to smile a lot and become cheeky and playful.
They are remarkably kind to others especially animals and plants. You can spot an INTP by their lack of direct eye contact and social awkwardness. While speaking, INTPs tend to look off in space because eye contact can interfere with their concentration.
Their demeanor is quiet and calm and they tend to be polite and respectful. They do not draw attention to themselves in public but when put on the spot, they may say or do things that are surprisingly funny or witty. They like to explain things. When lost in thought or listening to someone intently they may appear very pensive and focused.
They look serious most of the time and their sense of humor often errs toward the dark, deadpan and sarcastic.ENTJ - bossy af - prima ballerina - she is beauty she is grace - she will punch you in da face - always in warm socks - also an actress - knows how to build things - basically good at everything - will shout at you if you do something wrong - probably slept with almost all male friends.

ENFP: Super excitable, overdoes everything. Breaks down sobbing. Unwilling to actually move forward. ESFP: Unusually critical, closed-minded, and overly concerned with matters of appearance over substance. Terrible sense of logic, yet argumentative all the same.

ISTJ: Scattered mind, unable to think coherently. Becomes judgmental and passive-aggressive.A study conducted in assures that simple eye contact could make a person fall in love with you Kellerman, Lewis, and Laird. Eye contact is a powerful stimulator of love and affection.
When you look someone directly in the eyes, their body produces a chemical called phenylethylamine that may make the person feel in love. If you want to make someone fall in love with you, one of the first thing you should do is to look into their eyes.
In fact, eye gazing creates a highly emotional state similar to fear. Now you need to decide what your next move will be — approach or retreat. However, it is important to go slowly. Do not make this change in one day; otherwise, it will seem unnatural. They will feel like a deer eyed up by a lion! Hot or Cold? It is also important that your eyes are warm and passionate; looking in empty fish eyes is no fun! Your eyes will look more attractive if the pupils are wide.
They get bigger when you look at something you like, or when you think of something pleasant in a way that you almost see it. Alternatively, you can think about how much you adore them and how happy you are to be around; your pupils should enlarge.
Try it yourself, and you will see the difference. Just remember to go slowly. What makes you the way you are?
6 Signs An INTP Likes You | How INTPs show love
Includes professional follow-up by a CBT therapist. Click here to get started.The INTP personality type is the most independent and philosophical of the 16 types. Toward this end, they may devour stacks of books on philosophy, religion, psychology, evolutionary theory, and the like. When discussing a topic that interests them, they can be stimulating conversationalists, as their ever active minds can easily connect one topic to another, paving the way for a multifaceted and broad-ranging dialogue.
If disinterested however, such as when forced to endure protracted small talk, they will quickly zone out or find a way of redirecting the conversation. They enjoy discovering what makes people tick—their motivations, interests, patterns, and propensities. Like other introverts, INTPs can be anxious and self-conscious characters. It is not uncommon for them to display a handful of nervous habits, or at least some sign that they are not at ease.
They generally avoid direct eye contact, as though the gaze of their interlocutor may somehow harm them or render them incapable of thinking or communicating.
INTPs often have enough insecurity about the discombobulated nature of their Ne expressions in the first place. Feeling that someone else is watching or critiquing them only makes it worse.
As strange as it may seem to other types, INTPs often conceal some of their most dominant personality features, namely, their highly cerebral and rational side. It may only be a select few who are granted full access to this side of the INTP. This may explain why many INTPs often take interest in writing, which provides an excellent forum for expressing themselves more fully and precisely.
Because of their reluctance to freely display the rational dimension of their personality, as well as the scattered nature of their Ne expressions, INTPs often feel their true level of knowledge and competence goes unnoticed by others. This is especially common in the workplace, where their lack of enthusiasm for organizational life, combined with their quirky outward demeanor, may be mistaken for incompetence.
While they can use their Ne and Fe to attract potential mates, their tug-of-war between Ti and Fe, between their independence Ti and relationships Fecan inspire myriad problems.
This will be elaborated later in this profile in our section on Fe. Each personality type prefers four of the eight functions first described by Jung. As is true for other types, their type development consists of three primary phases. They may, for instance, use it to master video games, program computers, get good grades, or perfect their 5 K time.
Even from a young age, they can be self-starters, striving for excellence in whatever captures their interests. But since Ne is extraverted and expansive, INTPs must explore a breadth of ideas before they feel confident about who they are and what they believe.
Some may struggle with nihilism or cynicism, worried that they may never find absolute truth. INTPs use Ti to bring structure and order to their inner world, granting them a strong sense of inner control. Inwardly, INTPs are highly self-disciplined, working to effectively manage their thoughts and their lives.But I'm coming back with a new article, and a new idea!
It's about the INTP drive for creation and achievement. If you need a product or service, why not go to another INTP?? You know will get a person who understands your approach to the world! I have received many emails over the last few months from people who are, or want to be, in a romantic relationship with an INTP. And they have questions. They need help. Does the INTP like them?
What does this or that behavior mean? What started as amazing is now drifting off course. How can it be stopped? What is going wrong? You are exactly what we need. You are a person who wants to understand, and you have a real heartfelt desire to understand your INTP and make him or her happy.
It's okay that you need help.
INTP Personality Type: Thinker & Seeker
There are often fundamental differences between how you and your INTP approach issues like calming, problem solving, and dealing with emotions. The miscommunications and misunderstandings can run rampant. And because these conflicts lead to frightening emotional upheaval and conflict for INTPs, their natural reactions may give you the appearance that they no longer have feelings for you. Tragically, the opposite is true. It is the intensity of the negative emotions that is fueling their withdrawal.
But I'm getting ahead of myself.MBTEYES - How to (MBTI) Type People Looking at Their Eyes
Below, I'll describe common relationship situations, give you a sneak peek into the INTP consciousness, then suggest how you might respond.
Now for a few housekeeping items. This article is focused on new and recently new relationships. However, even the most seasoned relationships will see elements of themselves described here. The good news is that what I'm going to talk about is straightforward. These frictions, once you see them, will be very easy to understand.
INTP Personality Type: Thinker & Seeker
Dealing with them, of course, is another matter. Because each person is entitled to have his or her own wants, needs, and love language. When two people don't match up on these points such as when two different types attractthe best possible outcome is that you meet in the middle.
I know it sounds great, but really think about what that means. Each person will only get half of what he or she wants at best. You have to understand that is your goal.
